Originally designed as milestone minis for our birthday little ones we've expanded these sessions to work for (almost) any quick simple studio mini session. The studio is open to little ones, families, maternity, newborn, head shots and more. Families of up to 4 only due to space limitations. The key to booking one of these sessions though is to come in with ONE GOAL only.

Please do not purchase with the goal of cramming a full session into 20 minutes. If there is bonus time, you can bet I'll keep shooting but it's not realistic for this small timeframe to expect something like family photos with a further breakdown of the kids together and kids individually. It's not realistic to have a cake smash with pre-smash photos and then have time to clean up the aftermath too. But if you're happy with kids jumping on the bed and mom and dad playfully tackling them as your whole session time, or if you're okay walking in and letting your birthday boy dig into cake after a few minutes, then this is an awesome session option for you.

These sessions take place in my home studio in Brookhaven, PA. My home is nothing glamorous. It's an adequate size fixer-upper, still on the mend. But I love the moments I can capture in my space. With a cozy bed setup, simple backdrops, and subtle accents, I could spend forever photographing in here.

Sessions run back to back to back so time is of the essence for these sessions. Little one should come in completely dressed, diaper changed, fed and ready to meet me for a couple minute warmup and then right into photos. Same rules apply when the session time is over. Promptly out the door allowing the next little one to come in and start.

Each session is 20 minutes and approx 2 weeks after the session you'll receive a private online proofs gallery. 3 images are included in your package but you are welcome to order additional at the rate of $20 each or a flat rate $119 to download your entire gallery. 15-20 is our normal gallery size for cooperative little ones. Photos will be delivered in high-res digital format with personal use/printing rights meaning you can post on social media and print them as you please.

Social media use: A huge part of my marketing is the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our Facebook, IG, Twitter. Plus it's a fun way for me to post sneak peeks for you while I edit. I don't use full names or tag clients without their permission.

Setup Choice: You'll have the option of our studio bed (which the decor changes only slightly with the time of the year) or a faux wood backdrop setup. Backdrops are child-sized and are great for photos of just a child (up to three if cooperative enough to follow direction so I can pose them to squeeze in). And our bed setup is great for photos that would be better with the freedom to move around such as family sessions, mommy n me, crazy kiddos. It's also just a really comfy pretty setting for any setup whether it be a simple baby's birthday session, or maternity, etc. It's versatile :) When you sign up we'll send you questionnaire which will fill us in on your goal and backdrop preference.

Cake smashes: White or cream cakes only due to staining on the backdrops. 6 to 8 inch cakes recommended. I'll have a few simple cake toppers such as a wooden ONE or 1, or a Hooray wooden topper if you would like to borrow. But, what I highly recommend to make your cake decorative, is have your florist or baker, decorate your cake with some fresh greenery or flowers or berries. Add cute little pinecone and evergreen sprigs for winter, or maybe a few sweet little flowers, or silver dollar eucalyptus, or a mini version of those gorgeous naked cakes with the raspberries and blueberries. Please let us know ahead of time if you'll be doing a cake smash.

A few days after purchase we'll send over an email to you with your contract and all the details you'll need so be sure to email us with your correct email address if the one you used to pay with is not where you'd like this information sent.
